    Verse 1
    God's peace be unto this house
    And all those dwelling therein
    May God's peace from heav'n above
    Dwell on earth with men of peace;
    Let the Holy Ghost descend
    That the blessing may come down;
    Prince of peace, receive Thy crown
    And the fulness of Thy grace.

    Verse 2
    Christ, Thou art my Lord and God
    Let me Thy good herald be;
    Remember Thy word, we pray
    Visit them and visit me;
    Let salvation enter in
    This house and all that dwell there,
    Deliver our hearts from sin
    Make us Thy holy abode.

    Verse 3
    Do not let us grow weary
    Till the promise is fulfilled,
    Until we shall be Thine own
    By our being sanctified;
    Grant that our love be renewed
    That we find our lost blessing
    And may we be the temple of
    Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
